Quote of the Day

“Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.”

—James Allen Writer

From the Desk of Dave Linzey...

Our CVCHS family is grief-stricken with the passing of sophomore Wyatt Bredell. The
incredible sorrow, shock, and confusion experienced by students and staff alike is a
challenge that has brought to the forefront of our attention the emotional difficulties our
students encounter as part of life. The impact this teenager's life and death has had upon
our community is truly remarkable. The love and friendship so many students lost has
been heart-wrenching as you could witness all across campus last Friday. Tears, pain
and sorrow filled our hallways and classrooms. Our thoughts and prayers go out to
Wyatt's parents and family. Words cannot even begin to convey our heartfelt sorrow for
their loss and pain.
I want to commend our teachers and staff - especially those who knew Wyatt so well. In
their own grief, they were able to focus upon our student's needs, help them process the
tragedy, and facilitate healing. Our psychologist, Katelyn James, demonstrated
remarkable skill facilitating our counseling staff in supporting students in their grief and
guiding our crisis center.
Teen depression seems to be a national epidemic. Every teen at some point in their life
will encounter challenges, loss, significant problems that are difficult. When I review all of
the potential obstacles students face, it can be daunting: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity
Disorder (ADHD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), eating disorders, family
discord and divorce, illness and death of loved ones, loved ones serving in the military
who are sent overseas to war, academic pressures to excel and gain admissions to the
premier universities, falling in love and breaking up...the list goes on. Being a teen in
today's multi-media world where every friend's problems are known and felt virtually in a
moment's notice is truly a challenge. Being the parent of that teen is a life filled with ups
and downs, opportunities and challenges. "And there is no perfect parent - just survivors!"
as one friend told me.
With the recent passing of comedian Robin Williams due to suicide, there has been much
attention focused upon the mental health condition of depression. We must help friends
and family to understand that there is help for depression. When encountering life's
struggles to the point of significant or debilitating depression, we must seek help from
professionals. Let us encourage those who are suffering with depression to go and get
the assistance needed to overcome the toughest of times. And most importantly, give
your kids a great big hug today.
In Your Service,
Dave Linzey

Attendance
and ADA

School funding comes directly from student's daily attendance.  When they attend school, even for a portion of the day, we receive full funding for that day.  When your student does not attend at all, we receive no funding at all.  Since 2007, California funding for public education (which includes charter schools) has been reduced significantly causing a tremendous strain on schools to offer educational programs.  We need each student here everyday, even if it is only for a part of the day (after doctor's and dentist appointments, etc.).  CVCHS can actually increase our state funding if every parent does their best to get their students to school everyday.  Thanks!
